Yet another surprising move by Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he visited ailing former Union minister Arun Shourie in Pune. One of the worst critiques of Modi in the recent times was overwhelmed on PM’s gesture who has even gone to the extent of filing a case in the Supreme Court alleging PMO involved in corruption in the Rafale jet deal.

Was it a simple courtesy call or the Modi government wants to break ice with a former BJP leader who silenced BJP critiques on many occasions in the past? He was full time disinvestment minister in the Vajpayee government and Modi government facing hic ups in this regards. What could be the possible takeaways?

  1. Is the Modi government looking at him to help in the matters of PSUs disinvestment
  2. Are they thinking in the line of replacing Arun Nehru with Arun Shourie on many issues as they need a person having statesman like quality
  3. Is the BJP want to give him a chance to its leader who is almost at the fag end of his social life to correct its mistakes but helping the BJP in anyway
  4. There might be something else that the PM has in his mind for Arun Shourie who is very valuable for his social and political understanding
  5. Since he met him in Pune, its message will go all across Maharashtra where the BJP has another former ally going against it
